Australia Post announces temporary suspension of eParcel collections
Australia Post will temporarily pause all Parcel Post collections from eCommerce retailers in NSW, ACT and VIC
from 7am Saturday 4 September until 7am Tuesday 7 September. Collections will continue in all other states and territories.
This temporary measure will allow Australia Post to responsibly clear record parcel volumes in parts of their network impacted by COVID-19.
The safety of their people is their highest priority, and this will help ensure volumes are kept to a safe and manageable level.
Australia Post will continue with processing across the weekend in these areas.
Express Post, Premium and Startrack Express services, and collections from Post Offices and SPB’s are not affected.
